  • Wedding: May 2013

Hi everyone!  I’m new to the boards but have been addicted reading for awhile =)  We’re still figuring out many details but I’ll play anyway.  It’s great to see everyone’s progress.

Wedding Date: June 1, 2013

Engagement Length: 16 months

Theme: Beach and travel

Wedding Party(#s): 6 BMs (1 or 2 of them as MOH), 5 or 6 Groomsmen (2 Best Men)

Ceremony (where, time): 4 or 4:30 pm. We are hoping for Sunset Cliffs which is on the ocean in San Diego. Wish us luck as they only start reserving ~1 year in advance!

Reception (where, time): Admiral Kidd Club 6 pm

Dress Style: Custom made inspired by Lela Rose’s The Woods, Watters’ Diana, Claire Pettibone’s Sky Between the Branches. Essentially ivory satin sweetheart fitted a-line with lace neckline and dramatic lace back (I love beautiful backs!).

Honeymoon Location: Leaving it up to Fiance =)  Since we’ll be living in Hawaii right before our wedding, we’re deciding to do the complete opposite of a tropical paradise. Ideas include Kennebunkport, Maine and Alaska.

Flowers: No clue… I’m planning to do DIY and will do a trial run this weekend with whatever’s in season at Whole Foods or the farmer’s market. Hopefully succulents are affordable!

First Dance Song: We’re still deciding. For our ceremony songs, we’ll have an accoustic guitarist play instrumental How Deep is Your Love, Forever by the Beach Boys, and not sure about the recessional.

Centerpieces: Seascape inspired with coral, seashells, flowers, succulents, and candlelight

Food/Menu: TBD

Cake Flavour: TBD

Favours: Flavored sea salts to go with our beach theme πŸ˜‰

DJ/Band/Ipod: DJ

Bachelorrete (when/what):  Spring 2013. BMs have thrown out the idea of renting a beautiful beach house in northern CA or a ski cabin in CO.
